Named after the ancient Slavic or Latin “Vlashovo”, was an important place where the Romans once held their fortress (castrum) called “Donatiana”.

Residents of Lug are mostly Hungary.

In the village there is s significant archaeological find from the Roman period. At the site of the present church (1475th), once was a Roman fortress. A Roman monument is walled in on the north side of the church (stone of the Roman legionary Marcus Floviusa Felix). The Catholic Church was damaged and destroyed in 1543. by the Turks. After the expulsion of the Turks in the 17th century, the church came under the Reformed government and administration. The church was damaged in the Homland war, but was rebuilt in 2010. and has a historical park (with a significant locals and people from Hungarian history).
